    Pros

    Creative thinkers and learners who have a passion for bringing value to growers and agriculture and allow me to develop and improve myself through training and manager feedback.

    Cons

    A lot of outside noise from the disruptive uninformed in social settings regarding the companies reputation. However, the company outreach is greatly improving this sentiment we employees face outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to refresh our tech devices that support our business and sales people. Using elite products reduce inefficiency in day to day business.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. Insurance is one of the best around that I have found. Co-workers are great to work with.

    Cons

    management is looking to advance adds could care less about the regular employees, just what they need to do to advance. Kids end up running the place due to rapid advancement and it shows!

    Advice to Management

    quit advancing managers so fast you have kids two years out of college running the place with little oversight from their superiors.
